submitted to September 26th, 2011

London, ON The Lambton Junior Sting Minor PeeWee AAA participated in the London Knights Early Bird Tournament over the past weekend. The Sting would put in a solid effort on the weekend, winning 2 games and losing 2 close games by 1 goal margins.

On Friday morning the Sting would face the Whitby Wildcats in their 1st game of the weekend and win a close game by a final score of 2 1. Lambton would capitalize on a 4 minute power play in the first period as Jordan Hurtubise would fire home a shot from the point assisted by Dante Fuoco and Joe Correia. Cameron Adam would score again on the tail end of the same power play assisted by Alec Trusler and Josh Vale to give the Sting a 2 goal lead. The Sting would continue to press the play but would be unable to extend their lead. Whitby would score a goal in the 3rd period to make the game close, but the Sting would play a solid defensive game the rest of the way to protect the lead and win by a final score of 2 1.

In the afternoon, the Sting would be matched up with a familiar opponent from their league division, the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs. The Sting would jump out to a 3 0 lead in this game with goals from Lucas Knowles assisted by Gage Langford and Alec Trusler, Cameron Adam assisted by Josh Vale and Jake Vince and Joe Correia assisted by Jake Vince and Josh Vale. Elgin would narrow the lead to 3 1 but the Sting would strike back quickly on a breakaway goal by Dante Fuoco assisted Joe Correia and Cameron Rombouts. Unfortunately, the Sting would fall in to penalty trouble and Elgin would score 2 late 2nd period goals to narrow the lead to 4 3 heading into the 3rd period. Elgin would score 2 3rd period goals to win by a final score of 5 -4.

On Saturday morning, the Sting would play the Quinte Red Devils and despite outplaying their opponent for the majority of the game, would lose by a final score of 3 2. The Sting would hold a 2 1 lead late in the 3rd period with goals being scored by Cameron Rombouts from Nolan Farr and Dante Fuoco from Jordan Hurtubise.
